Come and enjoy the views of Downings with your very own alpaca walking friend.
Your alpaca experience will begin with a short safety briefing where we’ll go through all the important stuff to ensure that your experience is as safe and as enjoyable as possible. You’ll then be given some treats to feed your alpaca and once you're comfortable with your alpaca we'll set off on the trail with lots of opportunity for photos along the way.
After the walk we then return to the main farm where your alpaca experience continues. You will get to hand feed the girls and you may also be lucky enough to see an alpaca baby born between the month of July and August. You'll also get to see some products which we make from their beautiful fleeces.
You can either choose to walk your own alpaca on the trail or share an alpaca between two people.
Restricted Group Numbers - Please note group numbers are currently limited due to restricting numbers as part of our Covid security so we cannot allow spectators at this time. Our aim is to provide a fun, relaxing experience in small groups, so we limit the number of Alpacas on each walk to 5 therefore we have a max of 10 people per experience. Our alpacas are much more comfortable in smaller groups to.
